Samsung Galaxy Watch Update
Additionally, those who own either the Galaxy Watch 4 or the Watch 5 will also receive new updates soon. This update will focus on zooming on the smartphone. The camera control app on the Watch will get a new feature that will allow zooming capabilities on the Watch.
With this, you can be able to control the zoom settings on your Galaxy smartphone from your Galaxy Watch now. You can easily do this by pinching on your watch face or by using the rotating bezel. Samsung explains that this feature will be very useful for taking group pictures. If you place your phone at a distance to take group pictures, you don’t have to run back and forth to your smartphone to make adjustments. You can now make all these adjustments on your Galaxy Watch.
Release Date and Supported Devices
Currently, Samsung is doing a progressive rollout of the 360 degree audio recording feature on the Buds 2 Pro. As it stands now, only the Galaxy Flip 4 and the Fold 4 support this new feature. This feature will not work for all Samsung smartphones as it requires Bluetooth LE Audio to work. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 should also support this feature.
The camera app control feature will begin rolling out in February. Galaxy watches such as the Galaxy Watch 4, Watch 4 Classic, Watch 5 and Watch 5 Pro are the only device that can get this update.
